The last refuge of the insomniac is a sense of superiority to the sleeping world.

Leonard Cohen (1934-?) Canadian poet, novelist, and singer-songwriter.

O sleep, O gentle sleep, nature's soft nurse, how have I frightened thee, that thou no more wilt weigh my eye-lids down and steep my senses in forgetfulness?

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) British poet and playwright.

Impossible to spend sleepless nights and accomplish anything: if, in my youth, my parents had not financed my insomnias, I should surely have killed myself.

Emil Cioran (1911-1995) Romanian philosopher and essayist.
